We all know the saying “April showers bring May flowers.” However, because we are experiencing a drought, April showers aren’t likely this year. Therefore, it’s our irrigation systems that will be yielding the May bloom and helping to maintain the overall health of our gardens and lawns. Did you know that for every 1,000 square feet of Fescue lawn you have, it takes approximately 35,000 gallons of water a year to keep it healthy? And like most plants, it requires even more water in the summer months. In other words, you’ll be depending even more on your irrigation system this summer. In order to conserve water, Nature Designs recommends an irrigation tune-up. The following are steps you should take to make sure your irrigation system is working as efficiently as possible.
